The Spitfire remains one of the most iconic combat aircrafts of all time and to own an airworthy example of this classic fighter is the Holy Grail for many wealthy Warbird collectors. For an aircraft that first flew more than 70 years ago and which went out of production in the early 1950s, it may seem odd to discover that there is a flourishing industry centered on this aircraft in the 21st century. Scratch-building brand new Spitfires or restoring original examples to airworthy condition has become big business, with aircrafts changing hands for several million dollars apiece. Husband and wife author team Paul and Louise Blackah look into what is required to find a Spitfire that's suitable for restoration and then return it to the skies. With Paul's vast experience in restoring and maintaining the RAF BBMF's Spitfires, and both Paul and Louise's contacts in the aircraft restoration community, this promises to be a unique look inside the world of Spitfire building and restoration in the 21st century.

The Jeep was the primary light four-wheel-drive vehicle of the US Army and allies during the Second World War and the post-war period. It was originally designed to meet a 1940 US Army specification, and over 600,000 examples were built in both Ford and Willys forms. The Jeep saw service all over the world, and a healthy number of restored authentic military examples can still be seen today in the hands of enthusiasts. This book provides a brief history of this iconic vehicle, and a fascinating behind-the-scenes insight into what is involved in restoring, operating and maintaining a Jeep today, 70 years after the prototype first appeared.

The M4 Sherman can be said to be the tank that won World War II. With almost fifty thousand built during the war, it was America’s primary armored fighting vehicle during the war. Thousands of these found their way into the inventories of the British Army and Soviet Red Army as well as other allies. This manual covers the development of the Sherman, the vast array of variants, and the use of the hull and chassis for other purposes. Also covered is production, anatomy, paintwork, and markings. Information on the M4 in action takes the reader from combat against Rommel’s Afrika Korps to Italy, the invasion at Normandy, and the race across France. And it wouldn’t be a Haynes manual without practical information about owning, restoring, and maintaining a Sherman tank. Whether you are an armchair General Patton or a serious collector, tips on buying a tank, special tools, handling heavy components, and recommended fluids and lubricants will prove invaluable.
